New Goods Section Platform

Over the past few weeks since the last post I have been stealing odd moment to go to the shed and work on the section of the layout in front of the sector plate

A new platform was constructed using a length of 3" x 2" timber with a 6mm ply top on it. The front of the timber was faced with plasikard stone affect.

Next up a ramp to the left and a section of platform across the end of the line.

Then a second ramp to the front of the line, graded to allow vehicular access. this ramp is made from a block of Balsa

All the platform tops painted with railmatch Concrete colour

The platforms were marked out with pencil to replicate 3' x 2' flags

Each flag was brush painted with matt magnolia emulsion to give some variety

A bit more of the magnolia done

Tarmac laid (OO cinders)

Once dried the tarmac was sanded down to lighten to high spots and flatten off a bit
